Focusing on real settings, this study aimed to develop an evolutionary approach based on genetic algorithm for solving the problem of rehabilitation patient scheduling to increase service quality by reducing patient waiting time and improve operation efficiency by increasing the therapy equipment utilization. Indeed, due to partial precedence constraints of rehabilitation therapies, the problem can be structured as a hybrid shop scheduling problem that has received little attention to date.
